How do you find courage . . .
When every turn reveals more danger?
A dangerous secret forces Christie to go on the run. With her new friend, Melina, Christie searches for answers to block the threats following them.
A tiny portrait offers an uncertain clue, leading to a remote lighthouse island along the Pacific Northwest coast.
The artist in Christie comes alive to the changing colors of the sea, the patterns of puffins flying overhead, and freedom she never expected. A brother and sister from the Quinault Indian Reservation become fast friends.
But when the mystery deepens and more threats invade the island, Christie must act quickly to keep her friends safe. A note in a puzzling language may help, but only if she can unravel its secrets.
Will she unlock the answers in time?
